Tattoo Removal Is Now Easier Than Ever With DESCRIBE PFD Patch

December 7, 2017

That 1990’s tramp stamp getting you down? Alas, a new tattoo removal patch is here.

  • The DESCRIBE PFD Patch is a silicone patch infused with perfluorodecalin (PFD) that allows rapid multiple laser passes in a single tattoo removal treatment session and helps the laser reach ink particles deep within the skin.
  • The Patch allows up to 4x as many passes per office visit.
  • In a recent clinical trial, patients reported less discomfort and faster healing with the Patch, ultimately reducing the time to clearance. In the same study, 100% of subjects given the option of completing treatment with or without the Patch chose the Patch.
  • The cost of the Patch can vary by physician and region. It is important to remember that when your doctor uses the DESCRIBE Patch, you’ll receive more laser treatment passes during each office visit. Since each visit is additional money out of your pocket and time out of your schedule, clearing your tattoo with the DESCRIBE Patch can offer significant benefits.
  • The FDA-cleared DESCRIBE Patch is the only product of its kind on the market.

Hello Holiday Parties. Goodbye Hangovers.

December 4, 2017

Morning Recovery‘Tis the season. You just finished stuffing yourself with a bird, various starches and a coma-inducing gravy, only to wake up and find your social life just turned into Truman Capote’s.

An invite to every single holiday party in town makes it’s way into your email, Facebook feed and insta-story. What do I wear? Who do I bring? Do I take Uber or Lyft? But most importantly, how fucked up am I going to get and how bad are my hangovers going to be?

I know a guy who can help. Before the hangover starts. Well, I don’t really know him, but I read about him and I want to know him because he is now my hero.

His name is Sisun Lee and according to his bio:

Sisun was a staff product manager at Tesla, and a product manager at Uber and Facebook. He graduated with a Systems Design Engineering degree from the University of Waterloo.

So not only does this dude carry some serious accolades, he made a million dollars in 3 months creating a product that basically cures a hangover. It’s appropriately called Morning Recovery.

Take a gander at this infographic to see what’s in it:

Morning recovery Ingredients

And here’s how they say it works:

Morning Recovery is centered around Hovenia Dulcis, an Oriental raisin tree. It contains Dihydromyricetin (DHM) which is an anti-oxidant that supports the body’s natural detoxification processes. Morning Recovery is formulated to help support your body’s normal metabolism after drinking alcohol. Have a good time, drink it before going to bed and wake up feeling amazing.

So, this holiday season, I implore you to go online and order a massive box of this elixir. Get 20% off using code: GROOMEDLA20 – click here

Bring it to parties. Encourage your friends who say: “I dont want to puke tomorrow at work” – to have one more shot of tequila with you and an egg nog chaser. Gift them with a bottle and say: “It’s all good Tad, you can’t count to three now but drink this before bed and tomorrow you’ll jog to the office”.

It’s like Santa in a bottle – it makes every next day feel like Christmas Morning. (Disclaimer: we’re not Trump, we endorse all holidays, this just sounded better.)

Happy Holidays! Enjoy yourself and don’t drink and drive. This only prevents hangovers, not car accidents.

Is Grey The New Blonde?

December 3, 2017

I wasn’t shocked to find a few grey hairs my senior year of college. My grandmother’s hair was white in her 30’s.  But I did object-my long, thick, curly hair was my favorite feature, so off to the salon I went!

At first I asked for a  richer brown and later, shades of red. At first, it was every few months – no big deal. Coloring was fun!  My hair was magenta at one point in my late 20’s after a move to LA to work in the music industry. But by my mid 40’s, it wasn’t fun and I was at the salon every month.                                              

age 26

When I asked several stylists over the years during if perhaps I should go grey and they all No! 

“No! You look so young for your age, and it will age you”

“Why? You will look so much older, at least 10 years older”

Or just a dismissive “No” followed by silence and slight head shake. So I kept my appointments.

Fast forward: summer 2016.  My hair seemed dry, brassy, slightly off no matter what hair mask or deep conditioner I tried.  I switched stylists again.  The master Beverly Hills colorist who did my hair last September made it look great for about 2 weeks, but even his expert work left me brassy and fake by week three. That’s when I realized it was time for a change.

But I was afraid.  I’ve interviewed many women – they tend to have similar fears including:

1- Grey hair makes you look old, older and/or is not sexy

2- Grey hair won’t complement my skin tone

3-  I’m not sure what my real color is anymore!

4- What will other people think?

Like any woman in our youth oriented society,  I didn’t want to  look old, or older.  Especially in LA! I was often assumed 5-12 years younger than my age, so the thought of “fast forwarding” seemed like a terrible idea.   But I started looking at photos of grey haired women on line – Facebook groups, Pinterest, You Tube: executives, doctors, moms, artists and models. Some average looking, some stylish, a few young and trendy.  Some were 100% silver or grey and stunning.

Grey hair encompasses many shades:  Bright silver, pure white, steel grey, light grey, and is often mixed with our original shade of blond, brown, red or black.  One of my favorite things about the greying process is that we are all unique in our coloring, and no one will have the exact combination of shade, light or dark, as we each produce a different pattern.

I decided to go for it!

This is my last photo just after getting my regular “all over”color September 2016.
